Cover Lover – 5 New Titles

This is definitely a mixed bag Cover Lover post, with two adult and three young adult titles. Let’s mix things up and start with the young adult covers for a change. Crown of Midnight from Sarah J. Maas is the second full book in the Throne of Glass series, and it is due out on August 27th. I like this design change, since the first book was pretty but quite standard YA fare. Nice.

Now this is interesting. Cassandra Clare is releasing (along with a couple of other authors) a series of e-novellas that will then be gathered and released in print format later on in the year. The series itself is called The Bane Chronicles features Magnus Bane, and the first story (What Really Happened in Peru) will be released on April 16th. I am not sure if this cover will also be used for the eventual print edition of the stories, but I do think it would make a great one.

And this third YA cover is for Diana Peterfreud‘s Across a Star-Swept Sea, the second book in her For Darkness Shows the Stars series, which is due out on October 15th.

I usually think of Melissa de la Cruz as a YA author, but Winds of Salem is actually from her adult Witches of East End series. This one is due out on August 13th.

And finally, this one is from the Anna Strong series from Jeanne C. Stein. Blood Bond is due out on August 27th.

Random Updates…

archangel's kissWow, hard to believe, but this is actually post number 1001.  Way back on August 11th, 2009 I started with a Cover Lover post that featured Nalini Singh‘s Archangel’s Kiss.  I think I checked every five minutes for the next few days to see if anyone had actually viewed it…such a nerd.  So, forward a few years, and things haven’t really changed.  Things have expanded a bit, and the look has changed a few times, but other than that things are pretty much still the same (and I am still a nerd).

On the site side of things, I have updated all of the Series Reading List pages, so all of the book lists are as up-to-date as I could get them.  I took the opportunity to finally work on the long neglected Completed Series List page, as well.  There are some that I think are finished that I didn’t add, since I couldn’t find official word that they were in fact over.  I will be keeping an eye on them, but if you see any that I missed feel free to give me a shout.  Also, WordPress decided to play with the way that the code for linking to a specific spot on a page was worded, which meant that all of those “Blah Blah reading list HERE” links no longer worked.  I do believe that I got that dealt with as well (each one had to be redone individually, so I hope I didn’t miss any).

On the Character Guide front, I added one a couple weeks back for Kresley Cole‘s Arcana Chronicles (speaking of which, it looks like book two, Endless Knight, will not be out until next October).  I also got Thea Harrison‘s Elder Races guide up to date and added the info for Lord’s Fall, and I am almost done the rough copy for the last two Darynda Jones Charley Davidson books.  That one should be FINALLY updated by the middle of this week.  That just leaves me Archangel’s Storm and a Mythos Academy book to get caught up.  Yay.

There are a few newbies to add to the New Release pages, as well…

  • It looks like Linda Poitevin will release another Grigori Legacy book in 2013, this one called Sins of the Righteous.
